This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.

Hi Sharon, Taylah, & Jo,

We will never get over our loss, we just are trying to live through it.

My long time boyfriend died of stage 4 colon cancer back on February 23 of this year. It had spread to his liver. He died less than two months after his diagnosis which was December 30th,2017. Still heartbroken. I miss him so much. I will always love him. We were together for 18 years. Want to get over the pain but I hope in time that I will.

I lost my mum in November to metastatic lung cancer. Within a year of diagnosis she was gone.... I became her carer as it became harder for her. I feel like there was so much more I should have and could have done. I miss her so much and I dont know if  it will ever get easier....

I feel the heartbreaking loss of my mother more and more as each day passes by without her. It is still so hard to believe that she is gone and NOT coming back. She was first diagnosed with Esophogeal Cancer and won that battle. two years later she was diagnosed with Lung Cancer . She told me not to worry, she was gonna  beat this one too! 6 months later she passed away. I was fortunate to be there with her, as she left the hospital to be home with hospice care. I took a leave of absence as I wanted to spend whatever time she had left. I LOVED her so very, very much. She was not only my Mother, but my Best Friend! I am so lost without her!!! We were very close. We did everything together. I feel most grateful that we both had the opportunity to tell each other how much we loved each other.  Going on without her, is so hard for me right now. It is so hard to wake up and go on. I have no choice but to go to work to provide for myself,  but every day is a struggle. Only thing  i want to do is curl up in bed and block out the world. I cry every morning before work and every night before bed. I even find myself crying walking to work or in the ladies room.  People say in time you'll be okay but I do not know if I ever will.
